PCBOS Passes Budget

Patrick County taxpayers will see an eleven-cent increase in the real estate levy after the Board of Supervisors passed the fiscal 2019-2020 budget on Monday. The levy goes to 68 cents per $100 of assessed value. A consultant recommended the tax increase be doubled as a way to make up for past budget deficits. The Board cut another $2.5 million from the original budget proposal to reduce the deficit this year to just under $900,000.
